Q.Can bulbs be stored in something like vermiculite or peat moss, that didn’t get planted?

We have had so terrible much rain that the soil where I wanted to plant them is way to wet I’m afraid of losing them. They are King Alfred bulbs (jonquils-not daffodils?).
Thank You very much!

You'll want to keep the bulbs dry when storing them. Vermiculite may not be the best choice because it attracts and retains moisture. Here's a good article about how to take care of your bulbs over the winter:
